Jemele Hill is now fighting back against Cardale Jones and what he had to say on Twitter.
Over the weekend the former Ohio State quarterback had a lot to say about hill’s reply to another former player’s accusations against Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes’ program. On Saturday, ex-Ohio State football player Marcus Williamson announced his retirement. Williamson, a four-star recruit in the 2017 class, also made some damning accusations against Urban Meyer and the Ohio State program.
Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones was among many ex-Buckeyes to take to Twitter to defend Meyer.
“Come on now Jemele, what’s terrible is that you are jumping all over a “story” that basically claims a man and program is racist with no real facts but yet ignore all of the people & players coming to his aid because of the FALSE allegations,” he tweeted.
“Did Urban and his staff run a very tough, competitive program, ABSOLUTELY! But allegations of mistreatment and attire around the facility was because of skin color or ANYTHING that wasn’t related to football or school is bull shit! Get the FACTS before you try to pass judgment,” he added.
On Monday, Hill fired right back at him for trying to invalidate what Williamson said to protect Meyer.
“First, this young man never called OSU’s program or Urban Meyer a racist. He spoke about a specific experience he had and college football’s system as a whole. I’m wondering why you seem hellbent on invalidating him, knowing players on most teams are not treated equally.”
“Secondly: Tough programs and coaches are fine. But Meyer has a particularly nasty history that tracks. It’s why he’s out of job. That “toughness” ain’t playing the same with grown men who are paid professionals. But hey, it’s your cape.”
Jones played quarterback at Ohio State from 2012-15. Take a look at his Twitter timeline and you will see that he has retweeted several messages from other players who had nothing but good things to say about Meyer and the program.
